Our first meal was here and the shrimp was INCREDIBLE. I would definitely go back again and again. The only downside to this place are the cats and that staff encourage them to be on the patio. I understand that the cats are feral but if you have allergies or just don't want a half dozen cats with feet of... More

We have been eating at The Blue Marlin since 2002 or earlier. Their fish tacos (we prefer battered) are delicious. For $3.50 you get two tacos with fried fish, pickled onions, cabbage, pico de gallo, and the best cilantro cream sauce you will ever taste. This combo makes for the best fish taco in town. They also have delicious fish... More

This place is great! Great food, service and price. We will go back. The grilled shrimp was perfectly done. As we ate they brought in two huge bags of fresh oysters. Talk about fresh.

We went for lunch after reading the good reviews on trip advisor. The reviews were completely accurate! The servers made u feel at home and were so nice. The shrimp plates were delicious! The fish tacos were the best we've had in rocky point as were the Cadillac margaritas. My daughter requested a bean burrito that was not on the... More

I have dined at this restaurant several times over the past 6 years, and am always impressed by how consistent and delicious the food and service is at The Bue Marlin. Not to mention they serve the best margaritas I have had in town. Can't wait for our next trip to Rocky Point so we can have another great meal!... More

A wonderful lunch on our way out of town. The grilled shrimp salad with the homemade cilantro lime dressing was delicious. My husband and daughter had the chicken chimichangas which they devoured. The guacamole was fresh and wonderful. We sat outside since we had our dog and they brought him a bowl of water. Such nice people. Worth a visit... More

Skip the beach bars....go just around the corner and you will not be disappointed! The Blue Marlin is very small but with incredibly friendly service and wonderful fish tacos and margaritas. Best of all it's very affordable. We had oysters for an appetizer and I go for the fish tacos every time...marlin, shrimp...they are all good. Keep a lookout for... More
